ESPN link This will only seem funny and oh-so-ironic if you've been following the NFL offseason. Long story short, the Vikings signed a Seahawks player to an offer sheet, and the Hawks had 7 days to match the same terms. Unfortunately, there was a "poison pill" in the contract that the Vikings offered, which made it impossible for Seattle to match, because they would've had to guarantee the entire contract (7 years, $49 million). Seattle challenged the poison pill term in arbitration, and was denied. So what does Seattle do? They sign Vikings WR Nate Burleson to an offer sheet worth the exact amount (7 yrs, $49 mil), and toss in two of the best "poison pills" they could've thought of, almost guaranteeing that Minnesota can't match, and basically saying "fuck you" in the process.
